We’ve noticed our branding is vague. As we enter into our 40 years as an association, we want to portray a strong brand to the public that you are continually confident in and can explain who you are as a current or aspiring Professional Home Economist (P.H.Ec.). To do this, we need your help.
To better define our mission, vision and values, we need to understand what is important to you, our members of ALL categories, when talking about OHEA and the profession of Home Economics. We encourage you to share your voice, opinions and help shape the next 40 years by completing our survey.
There are 12 questions and the survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The answers are anonymous and will be kept confidential. We strongly encourage honest, constructive feedback. This information will be used to help advance the association. Click HERE to complete the survey.
The survey will be available until January 31, 2019. If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, please contact Rachelle Provost, VP Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
